One day, rather than striving to be ahead, I wish parents focused on the present blessings they have in their marriages, health, children, food supply, water supply, school system, and employment. I've met far too parents while living in California that are merely angry, stressed, pushy, unhappy and rarely focused on the present blessings they have. Living a humble life is far richer. A simple life is long lasting.
I enjoyed the video above and became even more grateful for our life here in the USA.
I read a news report yesterday and wondered how this person arrived at this avenue... Did this person attempt to achieve more than what was to be his? Do we hang on to material items to hard, rather than letting go and allowing life to be what it is. Are we satisfied with just being ourselves, living anywhere, with our loved ones, being happy? Sometimes I wonder if we place far too much stress on ourselves to achieve what is killing our very being.
